layout at the top ?

What's the design layout for the top platform so that workers can access the top platform and stand there safely, yet at the same time keep rain and debris from getting into the spire structure when workers are not active at the top ?

Any new interior renders ?

A few months ago there was a posting of 5 interior renders showing stairs, escalators and high spaces. Soon after that Emaar announced the delay in completion in order to design and build upgrades for the interiors.

Just in the last few days, someone asked about the interiors and the same 5 renders were shown again.

The representation of these renders was not noted. Were they hotel, office lobbies, or other public spaces ?

Is anything new or curent available for posting ?

Thank you

If I'm not wrong the tower has a rain collecting system. Anyway a closable hatch wouldn't be that much of acomplication.

What is in the picture is dust particles... probably blown up form the multitude of construction projects happening. Las Vegas also has this problem... although not so much as late due to the severe recession --- Dubai should take heed of Vegas. Many there also said the city was immune from downturns... Just a thought, not trying to start a flame.

As far as BD the schedule calls for the it to be topped out when? By the end of the years?

First you need to resize your picutres using photoshop .. then host them on any image hosting site, for example http://www.imagehost.org/. After uploading your picture, copy paste the first link named "Forum Thumbnail Link" here.
I hope this helps
